Aitken also led the band The Carib Beats, who recorded for J.J. Johnson, Bunny lee, Joe Gibbs, Ewan McDermott, and Clancy Eccles. The Carib Beats disbanded in the mid-1960s, with Aitken becoming more involved with his church. Aitken has also been involved in the music tuition of the younger members of the congregation of his church, including Carlton "Santa" Davis, who went on to become one of the most prominent Jamaican drummers of the 1970s.[3] Aitken was one of the top session musicians of the rocksteady era, and his productions from this era were collected together on the album Bobby Aitken Presents Rock Steady Original & Red Hot, released by Next Step Records.
